April 30 2009

Motivational quote: "There comes a special moment in everyone's life, a moment for which that person was born. That special opportunity, when he seizes it, will fulfill his mission--a mission for which he is uniquely qualified. Int that moment, he finds greatness. It is his finest hour." -Sir Winston Churchill

Thought #1: You mean God has a purpose for everybody?

Thought #2: Seek that moment, don't just wait for it to find you.

Proverbs 30:1(NLT) ->the NLT uses an alternate translation/letter division from the majority of other translations. But it makes more sense to me. Compare it to Proverbs 30:1(KJV)

Proverbs 30:4(NLT) ->Who is He? The Great I AM, His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Timothy 5:3-5 ->First principle: adult children have the primary responsibility to provide for their parents when needed, yet our society (and our churches) barely encourages planning for that. You can get plenty of info on retirement, paying for your kid's college, planning for your own senior years, but very little on planning for your parent's senior years.

Second principle: The church should not expend its resources to do what its members are responsible for. If there are family members capable of helping, they should do so, moreover the church is right to expect them to.

Prayer: Lord God, we need to push forward in our lives and in this church. Give us the willingness to take the time to do it.


Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug
